Dynavap induction heater

Salutations,

 

I just wanted to let participants know that although i'd be more in favour of true power management i still wanted to distribute "likes" around and the system won't allow it.

 

IMO 1st-hand experimentation followed by publication is a great way to "share the fun".

 

So...

 

Good day, have fun!!  :sorry:

Done. The voltmeter is useful and having it on a separate switch allows for monitoring charge progress, which is very quick. I can get around 10 full bowls of 4 hits each (40 total hits) before it gets to about 10.8v. Recharge is super fast, way less than an hour for sure, although I haven't timed it. Clicks in about 10s first hit, 6-7 seconds thereafter. Much more predictable and smooth.

I can get faster click time if I tighten the coil, but think I have it about right. The depth of the vapcap in the coil also matters and took some experimentation. It's perfect now.

That's a lucid tutorial, a great DIY project and the finished product looks very tidy indeed.

Good job @FarmerPalmersNT :yep:

Would an Arizer solo do the same I wonder? I need to order a Dynavap to try it.

IMO some details need to be explained about how one could attain such reasoning.

If i didnt already have a pipes ps mini id be building one of those! Also having tried the new pipes flux heater i can confirm it is light years ahead of the current models. Absolutely night and day imo.

Howdy doodles dyna dudes

 

This thread has inspired me to have a go. 

 

Here's my first ratty attempt. 

Awaiting a bigger power supply as the 1amp one I'm using can barely heat  a safety pin. 

 

@FarmerPalmersNThas been incredibly helpful, responded to a bunch of messages and deserves a huge amount of respect.

Better power supply came today. Works perfectly now. I'm chuffed. 

Thanks to @FarmerPalmersNT again for the inspiration.

Hi all,

 

I am just putting together the bits to make one of these. I am using a large single-use coffee cup. I am interested in using USB to charge this, and not a 12v. Any thoughts? Or is a standard 12v charger much easier?

 

Cheers!
